Good morning everyone! I’m going to try something new on my blog - every Sunday I’ll be sharing an encounter from my earlier modeling days.

Donna must be her sister, who had me open the first show, therefore this must be Karan. For a year or two after, I assumed Donna and Karan were twin sisters who had two different lines. I only realized I was wrong when a friend of mine, who isn’t even in the fashion industry, told me Donna Karan is the name of one person. I’m just glad I never asked Donna about her sister Karan…
